NCQA's office practice performance assessment program, Physician Practice Connections (PPC) involves a set of performance measures standards associated with comprehensive systems in three critical areas: clinical information systems, patient education and support, and care management. Physician Practice Connections is a voluntary performance assessment program.

Meeting PPC standards means that practices use connections--to information, to patients, to other practitioners, and to evidence based medicine. Based on health services research showing the importance of these connections to quality care, PPC recognizes those practices that:

  • Create personalized care plans
  • Work with patients over time
  • Follow up with patients and with other providers
  • Manage populations using evidence-based care
  • Employ electronic tools.

Physician Practice Connection's performance categories are part of a larger number of activities practices may be involved in to deliver quality, safe and evidence-based care. We also encourage you to contact the physician or practice directly.
